The next day, a giant beanstalk has grown. Jack decides to climb the beanstalk. At the top, Jack sees a very big castle. He slowly creeps into the castle. Inside, Jack sees a giant man. He also sees a giant woman. On the table, there is a hen. This hen lays golden eggs. Next to the hen, is a magic harp. This harp plays music by itself.
The hen and the harp belong to Jack. The giant man had stolen them before. Jack is very angry. He want to take back the hen and the harp. The giants begin to sleep. Jack quickly takes the hen and the harp.
Suddenly, the harp begins to play a song. The giant man awakes and chases Jack. Out of the castle they go. Jack quickly slides down the beanstalk. He takes an axe and chops the beanstalk.
